Condensation? yes that was what lead to current protocol of waiting.
Five to ten minutes in the summer maybe, don't really measure time but feel the jar. When it feels the same as clean empty jar it is ready. Waiting is not necessary in the winter as seed fridge is in unheated part of building that stays cold and dry. In the winter i can spend hours looking through seeds without worry.
I like to keep a couple fresh clean jars with desiccant handy to dump seeds into after selections are made, maintenance ready to go.
